Music Monitor Network convenes twice a year, once at the annual NARM meeting and again at a
separate Music Monitor Network Convention and Creative Conference, called Noise in the Basement, which
is held in Baltimore, MD in September.
Music Monitor Network was formed in June of 1997 to benefit both mid-sized independently owned music
retailers and record labels/distributors. As retailers with 2 to 30 stores, Network account chains are large
enough to deal direct with the major labels and are considered to be very important accounts in terms of
breaking artists. By combining the marketing efforts of mid-sized chains across the country, the Music
Monitor Network allows labels to save time and money by enjoying economies of scale in the execution of
innovative promotional/advertising campaigns.
